Black Mould: 3 Tips for Toronto Business Owners

Monday, March 14, 2011

Black Mould can be very difficult to remove. Mould growth can lead to many serious health issues, and should be professionally removed. It can begin to deteriorate your building and cause health problems in anyone who is exposed to the infected area. Every Toronto business owner should check for mould so they can remedy the situation before it puts them and their employees at risk. The following tips can help you determine if you need the assistance of a professional mould remediation service for your building.

Tip 1: Water Back Up Can Create Ideal Mould Growth Conditions

Unfortunately water leakage and water back up can happen anywhere. Even if you have repaired the cause of the problem, standing water can create ideal conditions for mould to grow. If you have experienced this type of situation, consider hiring a professional mould remediation company to evaluate the area. Even a smaller leak, such as a dripping pipe, loose valve or leaky toilet, can lead to significant mould growth and should be handled accordingly.

Tip 2: Stains on Ceilings, Walls or Floors can Indicate the Presence of Mould

If your building has numerous stained ceilings, walls or floors, this could be a hint that somewhere within mould is growing. The area may be small, that a replacement if a tile or area of drywall might get rid of the problem for now, but you should consider the possibility that something bigger is lurking just out of site. A mould remediation contractor can take a closer look to determine the source of the stains and remove it permanently. Acting quickly can also save you money in further wall, ceiling or floor repairs, not to mention saving any illnesses or sicknesses.

Tip 3: Damp Areas are Havens for Mould

Mould remediation may be required for any damp spaces in your Toronto building. Any area that has moisture for a period of time can grow mould. Although this should dry out it is possible mould may already have taken up residence. A mould remediation contractor can take a closer look to determine the level of risk and evaluate the Mould growth.
